Traço Descontínuo: Coleção Norlinda e José Lima – Uma seleção (Parte II) [Broken line: the Norlinda and José Lima Collection – a selection (Part II)]
31 may 2014 — 10 may 2015
Curator: Miguel Amado

Traço Descontínuo is the first exhibition that reviews the Norlinda and José Lima Collection in two parts. The exhibition does not follow any given point of view, as habitually done when approaching a collection that has already been explored and shown. On the contrary, it reveals the collection in its multiple dimensions. The exhibition is thus organized according to a principle for the permanent installation of a museum’s collection. (...) The first consequence of this option is a focus on foreign artists, particularly two specific groups: one forming the majority in the collection and the other being a minority: iconic or recently recognized western artists, both from now and from the 1950s and 1980s; artists from the Southern hemisphere whose careers began in the 1990s and 2000s. (...) The second consequence of this option is a laying out a panorama of Portuguese art. The choice of Portuguese artists therefore includes canonical post- WWII authors, recognized artists from the period post-25 April 1974 Revolution, especially those associated with the 1980s and 1990s; and those with careers that started in the 2000 and foreshadow the following generations.
